Jean-Marie Teno strives, as we know, to point out the legacy of colonialism in individual destinies. On meeting, in 2004, Ernestine Ouandie, the daughter of Ernest Ouandie (a fighter made famous during Cameroon's independence who was executed by the authorities of his country in 1971), he finds himself at the crossroads between personal drama and national history. In this interview, the young woman tells him about her miserable childhood, then the quest for the truth about her father. These are testamonial confessions, given that Ernestine chose to die in 2009, leaving Teno to pay homage to her.
